About Douglas White
Douglas White culls the detritus of society and compulsively churns it into uncanny, monumental sculptures. Driven by a fascination with discarded and overlooked materials and "finding something magical within the everyday and revealing it through an action an impulse," White's intuition-based practice incorporates things like exploded tires, ruined recycling bins, and decaying trees. He often subjects his materials to violent transformations, revealing inner or unexpected surfaces, structures, aesthetics, and fragility.
British, 1977 , Guildford, United Kingdom, based in London, United Kingdom
